New York Times correspondent J. B. Collins saw the horrific evidence with his own eyes. The brutal Islamist leader Abu Khalif has already demonstrated that he's not afraid to unleash horrific destruction on his enemies. How many more will die before Khalif is stopped?

With the president of the United States missing, the eyes of the world are on Jordan. ISIS is on the move. Amman is in flames.

Brought into the inner circle of the king of Jordan, Collins is desperate to discover the fate of the president before it's too late. But there's a problem: someone is leaking secrets to ISIS. And Collins finds himself a prime suspect. Now he's in a race to clear his own name in time to prevent the unthinkable. What he encounters along the way will change him forever. Deep in the tunnels beneath an ancient city, he will come face-to-face with the true nature of evil. Whether he can overcome it in time will determine the future of a nation...and the destiny of his own soul.

    Rarely do I find a book I can't finish. This unfortunately was one of them. So bad. The author rambles and rambles and takes himself quite seriously. After a few hours of listening, I just couldn't continue.
